Donald Trump tweeted shocking news about his son, Eric.
Prior to being sworn in as President, Trump tweeted that Eric would no longer be able to raise money for childhood cancer research because of presidential conflicts of interest.
“My wonderful son, Eric, will no longer be allowed to raise money for children with cancer because of a possible conflict of interest with my presidency,” Trump tweeted. “Isn’t this a ridiculous shame? He loves this kids, has raised millions of dollars for them, and now must stop. Wrong answer!”
Eric Trump, I Have The Truth reported, has been raising money for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital since he was 21 years old.
Many readers pointed out the hypocrisy in the issue, particularly considering the fact that Hillary and Bill Clinton ran the Clinton Foundation.
“The Clinton’s could have their foundation which they used for themselves instead of what it was supposed to be used for Charities! Now those children are going to suffer because of her when his foundation money goes directly to St Jude’s, something very wrong with this picture,” one Mad World News reader commented on the site’s Facebook page.
“The children of St Jude’s shouldn’t have to suffer because eric trumps father is the president. Eric trump should be allowed to raise money for St jude’s children,” another added.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump’s presidency has continued to spark controversy among people around the world. Even British MPs have been debating whether Trump should be allowed to visit the UK.
One of the issues debated was the infamous “grab them by the p***y remarks made by the President in 2005 – which conservative MP Sir Edward Leigh attempted to defend by saying that many politicians would have said similar things in private.
“I cast no aspersions, but is he seriously suggesting that it is a legitimate perspective and point of view that the comments made, in public, by Trump on a number of issues, including marriage equality for LGBT people, and in private, which were recorded and broadcast, on sexual abuse and attacking women, are a legitimate position?” MP Hannah Bardell said in response, BBC reported.
